The ceilings are beautiful along with all the stairs. Perfect for a wedding, field trip, or to just educate yourself.

There's never a lot to see in capital buildings, but it's about the scenery. If you have free time in Indianapolis, I recommend you make sure to see this.

Beautiful old building with statues. It was raining, so didn't stay to long to explore further. Worth a stop.

The downtown is easy to maneuver around, we enjoyed walking to many sites downtown Indy. The beauty of this Indiana marble is exquisite. Loved the stairwells and attention to details.

Very nice capitol building - ornate interior. The first portion of the tour is done sitting in rows of chairs in the rotunda listening to the guide. Many school students in our group, so it tended to be more a primer of "how government works"...More
